us next week is a caricature of democrats, republicans feel like democrats successfully charactered mitt romney who favors the rich over the middle class, played him as a greedy republican. so they're going to flip the script a bit on democrats and say, hey, these are the guys who love big g. they love big spending, they can't get new, they can't find anything to cut in a trillion dollar budget? you have to be kidding me. we'll see a replay of these very stereo typical care ka turs that both parties like to trot out. that's why i believe there won't be a lot of movement, even as the senators bring their sequester bill to the floor that would avoid some of these kits. >> let me get your take on this quote -- in hans christian andersen terms, obama is the princess and sequester is the pea. over the next ten years it amounts to a $1.16 trillion cut or roughly three cents on every dollars. we might as well begin our great national bankruptcy proceedings right now. what do you make of that analysis? >> i find it interesting, because i'm hearing this all of a sudden in unison from a lot o
to he replace it now is for us to cut social security, medicare, and not close a single loophole. and i have to tell you, if that's an argument they want to have before the court of public opinion, that is an argument i'm more than willing to engage in. >> but if there's one thing republicans are pretty much united on, it's that revenue is absolutely not an option. >> this quest to continually to raise taxes is not going anywhere. we've already done that. >> americans do not support sacrificing real spending cuts for more tax hikes. >> this is the wrong time for sequestration to take place. we should be able to sit down together and resolve this without again asking the american people to have their taxes increased. >> i want to bring in roll call cheryl and washington bureau chief ryan grim. good morning. >> good morning. >> the president says let's replace this with taxes and alternate cuts. republicans say cuts but no taxes. is it clear, ryan, who has the upper hand here? >> it's not entirely clear. republicans certainly feel like they have the upper hand here, much more so than the
've done in cuts, about 600 billion to 700 billion in new revenues. i'd like to see us end at a point where we're 50/50. i think the president going out to the country and saying this should be a balanced plan about 50/50, the american people agree with that. but as dana and lynn were pointing out, it's going to be hard to get to that here in the congress. and while the american people will just blame congress, and i think that's quite true they won't distinguish so much between the parties, the reality is, democrats have been willing as we've seen from the $2.2 trillion in deficit reduction we've already done to more than meet the gop half way. but the gop's going to have to be a negotiating partner with us and a lot of the fight right here on the hill right now is not between democrats and republicans. it's between republicans and republicans in the house of representatives. >> they'll be looking at congress and saying democrats or republicans, it's your fault. >> there'll be many that won't discriminate between the two parties. but here on the ground, there is, i think, recognition that
understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the ground and more time in the air. suddenly, faraway places don't seem so...far away. ♪ >>> good morning. i'm chris jansing, live in vatican city. you can see the vatican behind me. and boy, there is an interesting energy in this city. preparations underway for the conclave. that will, of course, elect the successor to pope benedict after that shocking decision yesterday to step down. and another big story we're following is back at home, because the president is putting the finishing touches on the first state of the union speech of his second term. and we'll have a lot more on that coming up in this hour. but this morning, we are starting to get new information about pope benedict, and particularly about his health. decisions that may have played into his shocking announcement to abdicate. for example, we now know this morning, the pope has had a pacemaker for some time and actually had a minor operation to replace its batteries three months ago. we're also hearing
, the poll shows that the win is essentially at the back of advocates for new gun laws but can they use the public sentiment to their advantage and if so how? >> i think the senate is still a very tough lift on these, particularly on the assault weapons ban. i think, you know, most people think realistically the only thing that could happen is the legislation on background checks. you know, these national poll numbers really don't give you a very good reflection of, you know, the united states senate, where, you know, it's -- people from rural states have the sort of disproportionate influence in the senate. it's 100 senators, two from each state and the national poll numbers don't reflect the political reality a lot of these guys see at home. >> i'm wondering since it has been generally accepted background checks were more likely than the assault weapons ban how bad is the sticking point they have? are they likely to push through it? >> it is pretty significant. tom coburn the republican from oklahoma is really key to these talks. chuck schumer the new york democrat is trying to get co
for him, but at the same time, we understand, he makes us understand that this was a decision made with serenity. what i've heard is that he went and he divested his investments and he simply said, it's in god's hands. and i think that trust in god that he's shown for his ponti pontifica pontificate, he'll continue to follow through. >> but a kind of a paradox. this is a very traditional pope. he brought back some of the latin and pre-vatican procedures the to the mass, yet he is charting this whole new territory. i think it has a lot to do, frankly, with modern medicine and the fact that we keep people alive a lot longer, but as he pointed out, he's leading this huge organization of 1.1 billion people and it takes a certain amount of stamina and energy. >> there are two things that your comments make me think of. one, we've kind of cast him as this traditional pope, but he shows up on the scene, you know, the rottweiler, god's rottweiler, and about how god is loved. the next thing you know, he's first creating this big ruckus, but then the next thing you know, we have this incredi

really ought to stop come paining and come back to the take and work with us. >> and while there are no 11th hour meetings, no real negotiations, but lots of finger pointing, the president says there is still time for a deal. >> here's the thing. these cuts do not have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little bit of compromise. >> john boehner has just come to the microphones. let's listen. >> i don't think the president's focused on trying to find a solution to the sequester. the president has been traveling all over the country and today going down to newport news in order to use our military men and women as a problem in yet another campaign rally to support his tax hike. now, the american people know the president gets more money, they are just going to spend it. and the fact is, he has gotten his tax hikes. it ti it's time to focus on the real problem and that is spending. the president has known for 16 months that this sequester was looming out there. when the supercommittee failed to come to an agreement. and so for 16 months, the president h
states look very bad. what are our allies around the world thinking about us right now? >> well, i think there are a couple of points of what the potential impact might be. we were just talking about one of them. you have big cuts that have to come and the defense secretary has to be on top of that. you also have, you know, a situation where chuck hagel, if he's confirmed you wonder how beat up he's going to be, what kind of working relationship he will have with republicans. tell me what your concerns are about this delay. >> well, again, i think we have so many dangers that we're facing around the world right now and there's so many expectations for our international leadership and what signal is this sending to the world. and i do think that with several months past the election at this point in time, i'm really worried about the signal that this is sending to the country. are they ever going to get over it? the election is done. we need to move on. we do have very critical things that we're facing, like the sequester. >> let me ask you, if i can, because the sequester is the other bi
